These quilt tops were made from the same set of shirts.
I was a little nervous about putting all these plaids right next to each other, especially since some are heavy flannel while others are summer gauze. It seems to have worked out just fine. It will be a warm, cuddly quilt.
The experience of working with different weights and textures of fabric in one quilt has been a great skill to add to my arsenal. It took a few projects for me to become confident in my memory quilt making abilities, but now I am ready to take on this sort of project on a regular basis.
As each of these quilts is completed, I'll be sharing the finish along with a tutorial for how to make the quilt top.
